Really really excellent sushi I had here with my wife. We both enjoyed it so much! The rice was warm when it entered your mouth and add that to the fresh sashimi, the feeling was awesome. It is a small place and reservation is highly...More

Really good, well cooked and light rice. Their special "sushi-su" made with red vinegar gives that extra special touch to his creations. The chef also speaks good english what improves the experience. Loved it.
